Page 3 Welcome to the Foundation Certificate in International Insolvency Law course (Foundation Certificate), offered by INSOL International. The Foundation Certificate is a postgraduate certificate programme aimed at inexperienced or new entrants to the insolvency profession, especially in emerging market and developing jurisdictions.
INSOL International aims to provide an affordable, easily accessible course for working practitioners that can be completed at a realistic pace with the use of modern technology. To this end, the course is presented entirely online and does not require registered candidates to travel anywhere in order to complete the course. This course will be presented for the first time in 2019/20. The Foundation Certificate course is presented in one-year cycles between 1 September and 31 August each year and can be completed in one year, or over the course of two years should candidates wish to pace themselves in the completion of the course.
Registered candidates are required to complete eight modules in order to obtain the certificate, three of which are compulsory modules and five of which are elective modules. For the elective modules, candidates can choose from 25 jurisdictions in five regions across the globe. The prescribed materials for each of the modules have been prepared by experts in practice and academia, reflecting a wide pool of specialised expertise. The relevant modules and choices available are dealt with in detail elsewhere in this brochure.
Globalisation has fundamentally altered insolvency practice around the world, creating new challenges for lawyers, accountants and turnaround professionals. This trend towards globalisation is complemented by the development and enactment of new legislative instruments, such as the European Insolvency Regulation and the UNCITRAL Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency, the latter of which has been adopted in a number of jurisdictions around the world. With firms and individuals becoming increasingly aware of the importance of preparing for the future, the Foundation Certificate is well placed to prepare inexperienced practitioners or new entrants to the field of insolvency by providing them with a sound theoretical and practical knowledge of the basics of international insolvency law.
Being a bespoke course with a specific objective in mind, the content of this course has been designed from scratch by a number of specialists in the field. INSOL International is in the unique position of being able to source the services of some of the most highly qualified and experienced practitioners and scholars in the field to provide an introductory course on the legal elements of international insolvency and restructuring. This brochure provides essential information regarding the contents and requirements of the course. A very competent and dedicated team, based at INSOL International’s Office in London, is responsible for the administration of this course.
The Foundation Certificate course for 2019/20 commences with enrolment on 1 March 2019, with the course formally commencing on 1 September 2019. We are excited at the prospect of providing our members with a course that is both affordable and easily accessible, and which can assist new or inexperienced entrants to the insolvency profession by providing them with a solid basis for future career development. If you have any questions regarding the course please do not hesitate to contact the INSOL Office in London, or David Burdette directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On behalf of the Course Committee INSOL International Foundation Certificate in International Insolvency Law Word of Welcome
Page 4 The Foundation Certificate in International Insolvency Law focuses on providing a sound theoretical understanding of the basic principles of international insolvency law for persons who have had only very limited exposure to this field (or no exposure at all). While the emphasis is on providing a sound theoretical understanding of the principles of international insolvency law, the course will also provide candidates with a practical understanding of the issues at play, though at an introductory level.
The course is presented entirely online and while support and guidance will be provided to candidates, this is mainly a self-study course to be completed at a pace suitable to each individual candidate.
Emphasis is placed on corporate insolvency law and introduces candidates not only to the insolvency laws of various jurisdictions, but also to the various available mechanisms for dealing with international insolvencies. The course focuses on:
An understanding of the various principles and theories that apply in international insolvency law;
An overview of the UNCITRAL Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency or the European Insolvency Regulation;
An overview of the insolvency system that applies in the United Kingdom or the United States (as two leading global insolvency systems), including the approach to crossborder insolvency in these two jurisdictions;
An overview of the insolvency systems and approach to international insolvency in various jurisdictions across the globe.
Candidates can select from the 25 jurisdictions in five regions on offer.
The specific goals of the course are:
To introduce candidates with no or very limited experience in cross-border insolvency to the principles of international insolvency law;
To introduce candidates to legal concepts and theories relating to international insolvency law;
To introduce candidates to both primary and secondary insolvency legislation in a number of jurisdictions;
To provide an overview of the purpose of international insolvency proceedings and the impact it can have on domestic insolvency proceedings;
To provide candidates with a broad overview of the UNCITRAL Model law on CrossBorder Insolvency Law or the European Insolvency Regulation, thereby providing insight into international legislative initiatives dealing with international insolvency;
To provide candidates with an overview of the insolvency systems of the United States or the United Kingdom and how they are applied in practice;
To provide candidates with an overview of the insolvency systems of five additional jurisdictions from a list of 25 countries and how such jurisdictions approach the issue of international insolvency.
Upon successful conclusion of the course, candidates will have:
A sound understanding of the principles of international insolvency law;
A sound understanding of the legal concepts and theories that apply to international insolvency law;
A broad understanding of the primary and secondary legislation that applies in a number of jurisdictions, as well as the ability to apply such legislation to limited practical situations;
A broad understanding of the purpose and application of the UNCITRAL Model Law or the European Insolvency Regulation;
The ability to understand and apply the rules of international insolvency to a given set of facts.
Course Aims and Objectives

Candidates may also take the modules not selected under Modules 2 and 3 (compulsory modules) as an elective, as indicated under the heading “Course Modules and Selection” below.
Candidates may take more than the minimum of eight modules, but are advised that this will create an additional workload which some candidates might struggle to cope with. Taking additional modules will also impact on the cost of doing the course – see “Course Fees” below. The only restriction on the choice of elective modules is that candidates may not choose their home jurisdiction as one of the electives. The eight modules needed for the Foundation Certificate may be completed over a period of between one and two years, with one year being the minimum and two years the maximum amount of time a person may be enrolled in order to be awarded the certificate.
Course Committee Basic Course Structure and Other Information
Page 6 Weighting of modules Each of the course modules are of equal weight and consist of 80 notional hours. (The notional hours represent an estimate of all the time that will be required to complete the module and includes reading, preparation, completion of assessments, etc.) Language medium The course is presented in English. Where there is doubt regarding an applicant’s proficiency in the English language, INSOL International reserves the right to request the submission of an IELTS or TOEFL certificate as follows:
IELTS: minimum score of 6.5;
TOEFL: Reading: Intermediate (15-21 out of 30); Writing: Fair (17-23 out of 30).
Pass marks The pass mark for the course is 50 percent, with students having to obtain a minimum of 50 percent for EACH of the individual module assessments. This means that even if a candidate obtains an overall average of over 50 percent, he or she will still fail if they have not passed all assessments with an average of 50 percent, Stated differently, candidates will be awarded the Foundation Certificate only if they have passed eight individual modules as prescribed. Candidates who fail the assessment for a particular module will have to re-enrol for the relevant module, or enrol for a different module, in the following year.
Level of achievement Successful candidates will be issued with a certificate indicating they have passed the Foundation Course in International Insolvency Law. Levels of achievement, such as Pass with Commendation or Pass with Distinction, are not awarded as part of this programme. Re-sit assessments No provision is made for re-sits where a candidate has failed the assessment for a particular module or modules. In such cases candidates will be required to re-do the failed module, or to take a different module, the following year.
However, if at the end of the maximum two-year cycle for obtaining the Foundation Certificate a candidate needs only one module to pass the course as a whole, the Course Leader may, after consulting with the Course Committee, allow the candidate one further opportunity to pass the module. Such assessment will take place on an ad hoc basis and the candidate will have to pay the full module fee of £200 in order to take the re-sit. This rule will apply regardless of whether the candidate is from a designated or non-designated country.
If at the end of the two-year cycle the candidate needs two or more modules to pass the course, such candidate will have to re-enrol and re-do the course in its entirety, with the exception of Module 1, for which credit will be given if the candidate has in fact passed that module previously.
Page 7 Course duration The course will be presented in one-year cycles between 1 September and 31 August each year. Candidates will be allowed a period of two (2) years within which to complete the course, but may do so within one year provided they pass all the relevant modules for the Foundation Certificate in the relevant year. Candidates who do not complete the prescribed number of modules for the Foundation Certificate within the prescribed period of two years, will not be awarded the Foundation Certificate but will be issued with a certificate indicating the modules that have successfully been completed.
If such a candidate wishes to obtain the Foundation Certificate, he or she will need to re-enrol on the course when a new cycle of two years within which to complete the course, will commence. No credits previously obtained will count towards the Foundation Certificate upon re-enrolment, apart from credit for Module 1 (which a candidate will not be required to redo if they have passed it on a previous attempt).
Deferment Due to the fact that candidates have two years within which to complete the course, no deferments on the course will be allowed. Candidates who are unable to complete the course within the maximum period of two years, for whatever reason, will need to re-enrol for the entire course (with the exception of Module 1, if the module has been passed previously) in order to obtain the Foundation Certificate. Modules taken for non-certificate purposes Candidates who have successfully completed the course and who have been awarded the Foundation Certificate, may thereafter enrol for additional modules on an ad hoc basis for noncertificate purposes.
Where modules are taken for non-certificate purposes, a certificate will be issued to each such candidate at the end of each year cycle of the course, stating which modules were passed and the number of notional hours allocated to each module. Candidates enrolling for non-certificate purposes may register for as many modules as they wish, although it is suggested that taking more than eight (8) modules may have a negative impact in terms of workload. There is no limit on the number of times a person may enrol for non-certificate purposes; the only requirement is that such person must already have passed and obtained the Foundation Certificate.
Application deadline The deadline for applications for the 2019/20 course is 31 August 2019. The online application system will open on 1 March 2019.
